Second Annual Free Software Awards

For the 2nd edition of "Trophées du Libre", Soissons Informatique Libre - European Free Software Transfer and Research Center, invite you in Soissons, France, on Thursday, May the 26th 2005.

You can submit your project thru our website, no need to fly or drive to Soissons.


"Free Software Trophies" goals are to give credit and reward the work of individuals, companies and institutions which contribute to development and enhancement of Free and Open Source software all around the world.

This year the "Trophées du Libre" will award projects from six categories:

  • Security
  • Applications for public infrastructures and for communities
  • Companies management
  • Education
  • Multimedia / Games
  • Mobility
  • Embedded Systems.

For the first time, the event, partnering with Nexen Services, the Open Source hosting specialist, will award a Special Price for PHP Projects.

A jury, directed by David Axmark, co-founder of MySQL AB, will evaluate the projects. The members of the jury will be famous personalities of the open source community, including:

  • Rasmus Lerdorf, creator of PHP,
  • Edouard Gomez, Xvid Project
  • Ben Laurie, creator of Open SSL and representative for the Apache Software Foundation,
  • Nat Makarevitch, major player who promotes the Open Source software in the French speaking community

The jury will also include some professional users and contributors such as Laurent Bloch, information security officer at the INSERM and Patrick de Carné DSI at the Paris 5 University.

The Awards ceremony will take place in Soissons on May 26, 2005. The price is an encouragement for the creators, and a quality seal for the users. Additionally, the event sponsors and partners will hand over other prices.
